How Is OCD Diagnosed?

Read Transcript

It's primarily diagnosed by symptom report, by parent's reports, by children's reports, right now we don't have any kind of bio-markers and there's no genetic tests, tested to show a diagnosis, so it's done primarily by symptom report. Also we get information from schools, from pediatricians from siblings we get as much information as we possibly can about the child we're working with, and the more collective data we get conclusive data we're sure we can show that diagnosis is appropriate.
